    17 month old killled in drive by shooting...

    http://www.stltoday.com/stltoday/new...6?OpenDocument

    This article is slighlty different then the one printed in the paper that says he was in the front seat on his mom's lap. The article does say that by law he needed to be in a car seat but said it might not have made a difference. I think it would have since his siblings weren't shot and they were in the back seat. How very sad.

    The article says they were sleeping in the car when the father came out. I guess it is possible the father was trying to get away quickly because he knew there was trouble and didn't take the time to put the boy in the backseat.

    How sad. That's just so awful. I'm not sure carseat safety was at the top of their priority list if they both knew the father could be a target for such a thing...just my judgemental jumped-to conclusion though. I really feel for that mother.
